Great chapter! First, sorry for not revieweing ch 17 and 18. The log in thing keeps logging me out afetr i reach the my favorites page in my account. I love the way you wrote Snape, it's realistic, and his last words when he thought he would die were great! I would still like Harry to make up with his friends, especially Ginny. Maybe they do, but i haven't read the 20th chapter yet. Anyway, this is a great chapter and I absolutely love it!
Author's Response: Thanks! and no worries about not reviewing chapters 17 and 18, this log in thing is a pain. I hope you like chapter 20 and thanks for the encouragement!
*bursts into helpless tears* It's over!! NOOO!! Ahem, anyway, very well done, absolutely fabulous - another big 10, as always. I can't wait for the sequel - your writing is easily the best here and you're just as good as JK Rowling herself. I'm guessing the sequel's year 7, and I really, really can't wait for it. Well done, Stormy!! Your loyal reviewer, Ermine
Author's Response: Please don't cry! Mind you, I can talk since I was really upset when I finished writing it *sniff* Oh well... :) The sequel will be coming soon but I'm taking a break from it for a little while. I should have a bit of it up before HBP though!
Thanks for the huge compliment and also I want to say thanks for all yur reviews and encouragement!

PS : Yes, the sequel is year 7 and it will include the final battle between Harry and Voldemort :)
Now that was good. A good bye kiss was a very nice time to put it. Well done indeed.
I notice Dumbledore's speech was simular to his speech in Goblet of Fire though.
I am also planning to make a FF version of Book 6, you have inspired me so much. Any advice?
I think you did very nicely and I am giving you yet another 10. This will mean that for every chapter I reviewed for, I gave you a 10, except for the chapter when I complained about too much kissing though, when I gave a 9. This is a 10 and will always be a 10.
Author's Response: I'm pleased I got the kiss right this time!
I know that Dumbledore's speech was similar to the one in GOF but he is the same character and his speech about Cedric would, in essence, be very similar to the one in he would do later for Prfoessor McGonagall. I hope you thought it was good overall though.
Tips for writing a book 6. Umm...
Try and make the story as original as you can and do your best not to copy anyone else's ideas / use overused plotlines.
I try and write for me first and foremost but do your best to keep in mind the readers as well. Although you can picture a place or whatever really well, make sure your readers can as well by using enough descriprion. Saying that though, don't do overkill on description or the story will slow down too much.
Use twists when it's suitable to but make sure you give a reason for it:ie, by all means have Hermione suddenly getting a 'P' on all her work but give a decent reason for it.
Those are just a few suggestions and good luck with writing your own book 6!
Thanks for all the 10s (and the 9s!) and I'm so pleased you enjoyed it;

Wow... Im speechless... I find ur story trully touching, u have mastered JK Rowling's writing techniques and have display them in a fantastic way. I congratulate u from the bottom of my heart and encourage u to write the sequel. Thanks a lot for all the joy u created in my.
Author's Response: *Blushing* Thank you sooooo much, and I really mean that :) Lol, I dunno what to say! Just thanks for the fantasic praise!
Wonderful chapter. I like what you have done with Snape. And now, on to Betrayal.
Author's Response: Thanks! And I hope you like Betrayal too.
Grr Malfoy sneaking off....maybe Ron should use one of Fred and George's portable Glaciers and push him off(this coming from someone who wrote a whole fic about Draco...but really)......anyways good job so far =)
Author's Response: I gave F and G portable glaciers in chapter 5 but I'm sorry to say that I am not pushing Draco off one :)
Looks like i'm not the cryptic messages type either......who's the cat.....must find out .........good chapter once again.....=)
Author's Response: *smiles* I'm kinda happy I've left you hanging!
Good job, i always shy away from inveting spells and such as they're hardly done well, but your doing a good job.....jooms to next chapter =)
Author's Response: I felt I had to invent a few spells because JKR just hadn't invented enough that would be useful to the story! I thought that using Latin would at least make them seem fairly authentic. Thanks for reviewing!
Another great chapter, I especially liked the way Hermoine knew what it was when no one else did, and how ron said "Is there anything you don't know?"......well moving to next chapter ...=)
Author's Response: Thanks! I hope you enjoy the next chapters as much!
It was most definitely worth the wait, your description of the behaviour between Harry and Sanpe was perfect and you created the atmosphere brilliantly. Well done! *10*
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad you thought the wait was worth it!
Wonderful yet again. Yout creativity never ceases to amaze. I particularly enjoyed the moment with Snape and Harry. After they had been through so much,. the fight for their lives, it was a perfect touch. Keep up the excellent work!
Author's Response: Yay! I'm so pleased you liked it! And as for being creative...*blushes* :)
i LOVE this story, each chapter just gets better and better. that was the best action sequence i've readin the past 2 chapters. sooo good. and so glad that finally snape and harry respect each other. 15/10!!!!
Author's Response: *Huge grin on face* Thanks soooooo much! I've had these last few chapters written for ages now so I'm really happy you liked it!
WONDERFUL... I hope you know though, that Harry would never tell Snape about the prohecy. I am sad about McGonagall, who'd be headmistress now. Will the sequel take place in seventh year.
That was a wonderful story and I am giving you a 10. If this doesn't raise your rating to 5 stars, I dont know what will, but to me, from 1-10, this is 100, (even though there would be no such thing.)
This is one of the most greatest stories I have ever read. Very Nice.
Author's Response: Why wouldn't Harry tell Snape the Prophecy? Snape just saved his life (for the second time) and he was planning to try and kill Voldemort himself, which cannot work. Harry's not stupid; it's often much easier telling something like that to someone who you trust but you're less freindly with than close friends and family. Maybe you're right, but I felt that, in the circumstances, Snape was the best person for Harry to tell.
Anyway, I really pleased you like it and I hope you enjoy the sequel as much!
omg!!! wow. that was the best story in the entire world!!!!!!!wow. u really know how to write. u have mad skills. please have the last chapter up soon so i can read the sequal. i am soooo excited. please update realy really soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: *Blushing* Thanks! And work on the sequel is well underway and the final chapter of this will be added really soon!
Wow - that was so ... so ... *sniff* sad. Poor Snape - no one trusting him and then he saved Harry and ... Poor fellow. Can't wait til next chapter and then the sequel! I'll give a 10 - surprise, surprise. Also, I'm just guessing, but is Snape your favourite charcter? You seem to write a lot about him.
Author's Response: Yay! I'm so happy you liked it! I've had the chapter written for about three months now so I've been waiting to see what you all thought of this.
As for Snape being my fav character; yes, he is, but it's mainly because I can relate to him more than Harry and the others and there are so many fan fics, including the real books, which focus on the trio. Just my own take on JKR's masterpeice, really.
OH my god. It's past one AM and I've just finished reading this. I just saw that it was updated right before I was going to leave. But, I just had to read this. I'm pretty tired right now, so my brain can't really function properly. So I might have to read this chapter again tomorrow. Oh my god. I can't find words to describe how I felt while reading your chapter... It was so so so intense... so so emotional (though my tiredness prevents me to fully transform words into feelings properly right now). I beleive I'm the first to read and review this.. and I beat you for noticing the update (but of course, you're sleeping now so I know, it's not that great) lol. This chapter was so so so intense. I really must tell you for the millionth time how talented of a writer you are. Anyway, I need to catch up on some sleep now (I probably will be kept up by thinking about this story over and over again...not that that's a bad thing!)
Author's Response: Strangely I didn't change the update note; the chapter was accepted at 5.10am this morning! Lol, I hope you managed to get to sleep ok :)
Thank you so much for the praise *huge grin on face* and I'm really pleased that you like it. ~Stormy x
What can I say - excellent
Author's Response: Thanks ermine the one!
It's been a while since I've been able to read this, so I sat down today and read six chapters. It's bloody marvelous! It just keeps getting better and better, and although I'm looking forward to reading more, I'll be a little sad when it ends. GOOD JOB!
Author's Response: I'm pleased you came back to it! And as for it ending, there are only two chapters to go but a sequel is coming afterwards so I hope you won't be too sad yet! :)
I'm getting spine tingles! I love the tension you've built up, i feel like i could suffocate if i don't find out what happens. You've done such an amazing job with this fic and i fully intend to read your other one as soon as i've caught up with my other favourites!
Author's Response: Lol! Thanks so much for the praise! *happy grin on face* And Betrayal is in the admin queue at the moment but it should be up really soon.
Terrific chapter with a great cliffhanger, i'm going to read you're next chapter now, expect another review any minute!
Author's Response: I'm pleased you liked the cliffie!
